Indicolite - Elbaite on Lepidolite
Barra do Salinas Mining District, Coronel Murta
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.1 x 1.6 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0
Early summer 2021

A gem clear, blue and highly lustrous crystal of tourmaline on a small Lepidolite and Feldspar matrix. The crystal is sharply terminated at the top and also at the bottom but the lower termination is partial and somewhat covered by the matrix. An older thumbnail with fine form viewed from any angle. This is a darkish blue without backlight but is very bright with light behind. In excellent condition, no visible damage.
